Nothing is more evocative of the tropical lush Panama basin than the vibrant colors, and cheerful people. At Rainforest Adventures by Panama Excursions, we have combined both to bring you this incentive event and theme party, an evening to excite the taste buds, bring rhythm to your ears and maybe color to the soul, and learn valuable information about Panama.
We will visit the Island of Flamenco, which has a rich and proud US Military History. It was formerly known as Fort Grant named in honor of President and General, Ulysses S. Grant. Fort Grant and Fort Amador were originally designed as defense sites to protect the Pacific entrance to the canal. The tunnels used to supply the heavy gun batteries are just a leisurely 5-minute stroll and fascinating to see, these wonders of this former Military Site. The site no longer repels invaders but now, attracts visitors.
As you arrive in the event, the warmth of the colors and the strength of the walls stretch out a hand of welcome. Stroll ´round the fountain in the central courtyard as the beautiful ladies of Panama greet you in their stunning, hand embroidered, national dress known as, "La Pollera" swaying to the vibrant chants, follow them as you wind your way to our festive event.
No ceremony here! A large tree covered in lights grows right through the middle of the terrace, gather here or round brightly tiled tables covered in soft votive light. A local band entertains, and to complete the assault on your senses, here comes the food! Tasty tit bits, local homemade cheese, delicious ceviche, empanadas and more. Stay with the rum punch or try the local beer. We will totally understand if your feet start to tap to the band or you have the uncontrollable desire to grab your partner and dance under the stars. As the sun sets we have a surprise for you...stretched out in the distance bathed in a glow of electric light is a magnificent view of Panama City!
Returning to your hotel in Panama, we will add to the stars in the sky with a few of our own as colorful fireworks light the sky. Adios Amigo!
